In the Name of Allah the Beneficent the Merciful 

Indeed Your Lord Is Ever Watchful 

By Shaykh Abu Muhammad al-'Adnani ash-Shami 

All praise is due to Allah, the Strong and Mighty. And may blessings and peace be upon the 
one sent with the sword as a mercy to all the worlds. As for what follows: 

Allah the Blessed and Exalted said, {The people of Noah denied before them and the 
[disbelieving] factions after them, and every nation intended [a plot] for their messenger to 
seize him, and they disputed by [using] falsehood to [attempt to] invalidate thereby the truth. 
So I seized them, and how [terrible] was My penalty} [Ghafir: 5]. 

And He the Exalted said, {And [remember], when those who disbelieved plotted against you 
to restrain you or kill you or evict you [from Makkah]. But they plan, and Allah plans. And 
Allah is the best of planners} [Al-Anfal: 30]. 

And He the Exalted said, {Those to whom the hypocrites said, "Indeed, the people have 
gathered against you, so fear them." But it [merely] increased them in faith, and they said, 
"Sufficient for us is Allah, and [He is] the best Disposer of affairs." So they returned with favor 
from Allah and bounty, no harm having touched them. And they pursued the pleasure of Allah, 
and Allah is the possessor of great bounty. That is only Satan who frightens [you] of his 
supporters. So fear them not, but fear Me, if you are [indeed] believers} [Ali 'Imran: 173-175]. 

Rejection of the truth, mockery of it, belying the people of truth, using falsehood in 
argumentation, plots, mobilization, intimidation, enmity, and war - all this is the condition of 
the disbelievers concerning the truth and the followers of the messengers since ancient times. 
The known factors of the battle are similar throughout the ages. Theirs is a conceited and brash 
encampment of falsehood, which demonstrates itself to be powerful, and subduing, one that no 
conqueror can dominate nor any defender withstand. But the reality is they are fearful and 
terrified, humiliated and left with a weak plan, shaken and defeated, despite their uninhibited 
movement throughout the lands. Their television and satellite channels as well as their sorcerers 
are in a state of alert day and night. They dispute by using sorcery, falsifying events, altering 
realities, and duping people. They deceive, incite, mobilize, and amass against the people of 
truth. They display the people of falsehood in every guise of strength, ability, force, and 
fierceness, in desperate and failed attempts to invalidate the truth, scare its followers, and defeat 
them. This is the case in every age and time. 

You see the followers of the messengers in the opposite encampment with lower numbers, 
meager equipment, and a weaker voice. But their strength can never be subdued. Their 
authority can never be broken. They are firm in every battle. And they are forefront in every 
encounter, having neither fear nor dread. In the end, they will have the triumph and victory. 
They are always and forever victorious, since the battle of Noah (peace be upon him) and until 
Allah inherits the earth and those upon it. All this is due to their faith in Allah, the Mighty, the 
Compeller. From Him is their strength, and through Him is their authority. He is sufficient for 
them, and upon Him they rely. They are certain of His aid. And they returned having attained 
His favor and bounty. They do not fear anyone save Him. 

O soldiers of the Islamic State, what a great thing you have achieved by Allah! Your reward is 
upon Him. By Allah, He has healed the chests of the believers through the killing of the 
nusayriyyah (alawites) and rafidah (shiites) at your hands. He has filled the hearts of the 
disbelievers and hypocrites with rage through you. What a great thing you have achieved by 
Allah! Who are you? Who are you O soldiers of the Islamic State? From where have you come? 
What is your secret? Why is it that the hearts of the East and West are dislocated by their fear 
of you? Why is it that the chest muscles of America and its allies shiver out of fear of you? 
Where are your warplanes? Where are your battleships? Where are your missiles? Where are 
your weapons of mass destruction? Why is it that the world has united against you? Why have 
the nations of disbelief entrenched together against you? What threat do you pose to the distant 
place of Australia for it to send its legions towards you? What does Canada have anything to 
do with you? 

O soldiers of the Islamic State and its sons everywhere, listen and comprehend. If the people 
belie you, reject your state and your call, and mock your caliphate, then know that your Prophet 
(blessings and peace be upon him) was belied. His call was rejected. He was mocked. 

If your people fight you, accuse you with the worst of accusations, and describe you with the 
worst of all traits, then know that the people of the Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him) 
fought him, expelled him, and accused him with matters worse than those you have been 
accused with. 

If the parties have gathered against you, then know they gathered against your Prophet before 
(blessings and peace be upon him). This is the established way of Allah, the Blessed, the 
Exalted. Or did you think that the people would greet you by saying "Allah is the greatest" and 
"There is no god but Allah"? And that they would joyfully bid you welcome? {While such trial 
has not yet come to you as came to those who passed on before you} [Al-Baqarah: 214], 
whereby you taste what they have tasted? 

No! You will be shaken. {But We have certainly tried those before them, and Allah will surely 
make evident those who are truthful, and He will surely make evident the liars} [Al-'Ankabut: 

Allah has given you might and honor after your humiliation. He has made you rich after your 
poverty. And He has aided you despite your weakness and small numbers. He showed you that 
victory is from Him, the Glorified. He grants it to whomever He wills and whenever He wills. 

So know that - by Allah - we fear not the swarms of planes, nor ballistic missiles, nor drones, 
nor satellites, nor battleships, nor weapons of mass destruction. How could we fear them, while 
Allah the Exalted has said, { If Allah should aid you, no one can overcome you; but if He should 
forsake you, who is there that can aid you after Him? And upon Allah let the believers rely} 
[Ali 'Imran: 160]. 

How could we fear them, while Allah the Exalted has said, {So do not weaken and do not 
grieve, and you will be superior if you are [true] believers} [Ali 'Imran: 139]. 

How could we fear them, while you have proven yourselves to be the knights and men of war? 
When you defend, you are like the firmest mountains. And when you assault, you are like 
predatory warriors. You face death with bare chests, while the worldly life is beneath your 
worn feet. I swear by Allah that I have not known any of you except to be a forerunner towards 
every battle sound, eagerly searching for the place of death in every fight. I see the Quran 
walking alive amongst you. What a great thing you have achieved by Allah! The weak one of 
you is a brave warrior, and the merciful one of you is ferocious in battle. We have not known 
you to be except jealous and angry. Your jealousy is not but for the religion of Allah. And your 
anger is not but for the violation of Allah's sanctities. You say the truth and according to it you 

judge. You love Allah and His Messenger (blessings and peace be upon him). And you are the 
most careful to follow his tradition (blessings and peace be upon him). You are harsh against 
the disbelievers, merciful among yourselves. For the cause of Allah, you do not fear the blame 
of a critic. 

Therefore Allah will give you victory. Indeed, Allah will give you victory. By Allah, Allah 
will give you victory. So guarantee for us two matters, and we will guarantee you by Allah's 
permission constant victory and consolidation. First, do not oppress anyone nor be content with 
oppression by being silent about it and not raising the matter [to those in authority]. Second, 
do not become conceited or arrogant. This is what we fear from you and fear for you. So if you 
gain victory, then attribute it to Allah alone. Continue on with modesty, humbleness, giving 
praise and thanks to Allah. If you fail, then attribute the cause to yourselves and your sins. And 
attack the enemy again after asking Allah for forgiveness and repenting to Him with remorse. 

And we declare our innocence before Allah of injustices that could be carried out by any of 
you and did not reach us. And we declare our innocence before Allah of any injustice one of 
you conceals or turns a blind eye to. 

Thereafter know that a trial, sifting, and selection, are necessary between one period and 
another, for some people have entered your ranks who are not of you and are only claimants. 
And thus some disorder has occurred. So it has become necessary for a trial to come, expel the 
filth, and purify the ranks. We ask Allah for forgiveness and wellness. 

Also, pride and conceit has entered some of our souls, and thus some of us transgressed and 
oppressed others. So it is necessary for the sins to be expelled, so that you may return to your 
Lord. Allah has loved the mujahidin, and so there is no choice but for Him to take some martyrs. 
We ask Allah to make us of them, not from the disgraced nor those afflicted [in their religion]. 

O soldiers of the Islamic State, be ready for the final campaign of the crusaders. Yes, by Allah's 
will, it will be the final one. Thereafter, we will raid them by Allah's permission and they will 
not raid us. Be ready, for by Allah's permission you are befitting for it. The crusaders have 
returned with a new campaign. They have come so that the dust clears, the fog disappears, and 
the masks fall, and thereby the hoax of falsehood is exposed and the truth becomes clearly 
visible, {That those who perished [through disbelief] would perish upon evidence and those 
who lived [in faith] would live upon evidence} [Al-Anfal: 42]. 

O America, O allies of America, and O crusaders, know that the matter is more dangerous than 
you have imagined and greater than you have envisioned. We have warned you that today we 
are in a new era, an era where the State, its soldiers, and its sons are leaders not slaves. They 
are a people who through the ages have not known defeat. The outcome of their battles is 
concluded before they begin. They have not prepared for a battle since the time of Noah except 
with absolute conviction of victory. Being killed - according to their account - is a victory. 
This is where the secret lies. You fight a people who can never be defeated. They either gain 
victory or are killed. And O crusaders, you are losers in both outcomes, because you are 
ignorant of the reality that none of us is killed but to resurrect the dead amongst us. None of us 
is killed but to leave behind him a story that awakens the Muslims from their slumber by its 
recount. And then you see the weak one of us - he who has no experience in fighting and thinks 
he cannot contribute anything practical on the ground, having no goal except to be killed, so 
that he can illuminate the path with his blood and thereby enliven the hearts with his story, 
generation after generation. He makes his body and remains a bridge for those who awaken 
after him to pass over. This person has realized that the life of his nation is through blood and 
the honor of his nation is through blood. So he went on with a bare chest and bare head towards 
death eagerly searching for life and honor. If he survives, he lives as a victor with freedom, 

might, honor, and authority. And if he is killed, he illuminates the path for those after him and 
goes on to his Lord as a joyful martyr. He has taught those after him that might, honor, and life 
are through jihad and being killed, and that humiliation, disgrace, and death are through 
submission and subservience. 

O crusaders, you have realized the threat of the Islamic State, but you have not become aware 
of the cure, and you will not discover the cure because there is no cure. If you fight it, it becomes 
stronger and tougher. If you leave it alone, it grows and expands. If Obama has promised you 
with defeating the Islamic State, then Bush has also lied before him. Indeed, our Lord, the 
Mighty and Majestic, has promised us with victory, and here we are now victorious. He will 
grant us victory at every event. He is glorified and He does not fail in His promise. 

And so we promise you by Allah's permission that this campaign will be your final campaign. 
It will be broken and defeated, just as all your previous campaigns were broken and defeated, 
except that this time we will raid you thereafter, and you will never raid us. We will conquer 
your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women, by the permission of Allah, the 
Exalted. This is His promise to us; He is glorified and He does not fail in His promise. If we 
do not reach that time, then our children and grandchildren will reach it, and they will sell your 
sons as slaves at the slave market. 

On the authority of 'Abdullah Ibn 'Amr Ibn al-'As (may Allah the Exalted be pleased with 
both of them), who said, "We were with Allah's Messenger (blessings and peace be upon him) 
writing down what he was saying, when he was asked, 'Which if the two cities will be 
conquered first? Constantinople or Rome?' So Allah's Messenger (blessings and peace be upon 
him) said, 'The city of Heraclius will be the first to be conquered.'" Meaning the city of 
Constantinople. It was reported by al-Hakim in "Al-Mustadrak" according to the conditions of 
the two sheikhs (BukharT and Muslim) and declared authentic by Imam adh-Dhahabl. 

So mobilize your forces, O crusaders. Mobilize your forces, roar with thunder, threaten whom 
you want, plot, arm your troops, prepare yourselves, strike, kill, and destroy us. This will not 
avail you. You will be defeated. This will not avail you, for our Lord, the Mighty, the 
Prevailing, has promised us with our victory and your defeat. Send arms and equipment to your 
agents and dogs. Prepare them with the most modern equipment. Send them very much, for it 
will end up as war booty in our hands by Allah's permission. You will spend it, then it will be 
a source of regret for you, then you will be defeated. Look at your armored vehicles, machinery, 
weaponry, and equipment. It is in our hands. Allah granted it to us. We fight you with it. So 
die in your rage. {Indeed, those who disbelieve spend their wealth to avert [people] from the 
way of Allah. So they will spend it; then it will be for them a [source of] regret; then they will 
be overcome. And those who have disbelieved - unto Hell they will be gathered} [Al-Anfal: 

And O Obama, O mule of the jews. You are vile. You are vile. You are vile. And you will be 
disappointed, Obama. Is this all you were capable of doing in this campaign of yours? Is this 
how far America has reached of incapacity and weakness? Are America and all its allies from 
amongst the crusaders and atheists unable to come down to the ground? Have you not realized 
- O crusaders - that proxy wars have not availed you nor will they ever avail you? Have you 
not realized, O mule of the jews, that the battle cannot be decided from the air at all? Or do you 
think that you are smarter than Bush, your obeyed fool, when he brought the armies of the cross 
and placed them under the fire of the mujahidin on the ground? No, you are more foolish than 

You claimed to have withdrawn from Iraq - O Obama - four years ago. We said to you then 
that you were liars, that you had not withdrawn, and that if you had withdrawn that you would 

return, even if after some time, you would return. Here you are; you have not withdrawn. Rather 
you hid some of your forces behind your proxies and withdrew the rest. Your forces will return 
greater in number than they were before. You will return and your proxies will not avail you. 
And if you are not able to return, then we will come to your homeland by Allah's permission. 

O mule of the jews, you claimed today that America would not be drawn to a war on the ground. 
No, it will be drawn and dragged. It will come down to the ground and it will be led to its death, 
grave, and destruction. O Obama, you claimed that the hand of America was long and could 
reach wherever it willed. Then know that our knife is sharp and hard. It cuts off the hands and 
strikes the necks. And our Lord - the Majestic and Exalted - is watching over you. {Have you 
not considered how your Lord dealt with 'Ad and [with] Iram who had lofty pillars, the likes 
of whom had never been created in the land? And [with] Thamud, who carved out the rocks in 
the valley? And [with] Pharaoh, owner of the stakes? [All of] whom oppressed within the lands 
and increased therein the corruption. So your Lord poured upon them a scourge of punishment. 
Indeed, your Lord is ever watchful} [Al-Fajr: 6-14]. {As for 'Ad, they were arrogant upon the 
earth without right and said, "Who is greater than us in strength?" Did they not consider that 
Allah who created them was greater than them in strength? But they were rejecting Our signs. 
So We sent upon them a screaming wind during days of misfortune to make them taste the 
punishment of disgrace in the worldly life; but the punishment of the Hereafter is more 
disgracing, and they will not be helped} [Fussilat: 15-16]. 

O Americans, and O Europeans, the Islamic State did not initiate a war against you, as your 
governments and media try to make you believe. It is you who started the transgression against 
us, and thus you deserve blame and you will pay a great price. You will pay the price when 
your economies collapse. You will pay the price when your sons are sent to wage war against 
us and they return to you as disabled amputees, or inside coffins, or mentally ill. You will pay 
the price as you are afraid of travelling to any land. Rather you will pay the price as you walk 
on your streets, turning right and left, fearing the Muslims. You will not feel secure even in 
your bedrooms. You will pay the price when this crusade of yours collapses, and thereafter we 
will strike you in your homeland, and you will never be able to harm anyone afterwards. You 
will pay the price, and we have prepared for you what will pain you. 

O Muslims, America claimed when it first began this crusade, that it was defending its interests 
in Erbil and Baghdad and defending its citizens. Thereafter its blunder became clear, and the 
falsehood of its claims became obvious. It claimed that through its airstrikes it would save 
those expelled and left homeless in Iraq, and defend the civilians. Then it became clear to 
America that the matter was more dangerous and greater than it expected. So it started shedding 
crocodile tears over the Muslims in Sham (the Levant). It promised to save them and support 
them. It promised to save them from the terrorists. While at the same time, America and its 
allies remained watching the plight of the Muslims upon the hands of the nusayriyyah. They 
watched with happiness seeing the killing, abuse, expulsion, and destruction, neither interested 
in, nor concerned about, the hundreds of thousands of dead, wounded, and imprisoned 
Muslims, and the millions displaced - including men, women and children - all over the world 
at the hands of the jews, crusaders, rafidah, nusayriyyah, hindus, atheists, and apostates, in 
Palestine, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Burma, Nigeria, Somalia, Afghanistan, 
Indonesia, India, China, the Caucasus, and elsewhere. Its sentiments were not stirred during 
the long years of siege and starvation in Sham, and it looked the other way when the deadly 
and destructive barrel bombs were being dropped. It was not outraged when it saw the horrific 
scenes of the women and children of the Muslims taking their last breaths with their eyes glazed 
over due to the chemical weapons of the nusayriyyah - scenes which continue to be repeated 
everyday, exposing the reality of the farce of having destroyed chemical weapons belonging to 
its nusayrl (alawite) dogs, the guardians of the jews. America and its allies were not emotionally 

moved or outraged by any of this. They closed their ears to the cries of distress from the weak, 
and turned a blind eye to the massacres carried out against the Muslims in every one of those 
lands for years and years. 

But when a state emerged for the Muslims that would defend them, take revenge for them, and 
carry out retribution, America and the crusaders started shedding crocodile tears for the sake 
of a few hundred rafidl (shiite) and nusayrl criminal soldiers that the Islamic State had taken 
as prisoners of war and then executed. The hearts of America and its allies were broken by the 
Islamic State when it cut off the rotten heads of some agents, spies, and apostates. It was 
terrified and its allies were terrified when the Islamic State would flog and stone the fornicator, 
cut off the hand of the thief, and strike the neck of the sorcerer and the apostate. 

So America and its allies rose in order to save the world from the "terrorism and barbarity of 
the Islamic State" as they allege. They rallied the entire global media, driving it with false 
arguments to delude the masses and lead them to believe that the Islamic State was the root of 
evil and the source of corruption, and that it was the one killing and displacing the people, 
arresting and murdering those who are "peaceful," demolishing houses, destroying cities, and 
terrorizing the women and children who were previously safe. The media portrayed the 
crusaders as good, merciful, noble, generous, honorable and passionate people who feared for 
Islam and the Muslims the "corruption and cruelty of the khawarij (a deviant, extremist sect) 
of the Islamic State" as they allege. To the extent that Kerry, the uncircumcised old geezer, 
suddenly became an Islamic jurist, issuing a verdict to the people that the Islamic State was 
distorting Islam, that what it was doing was against Islamic teachings, and that the Islamic State 
was an enemy of Islam. And to the extent that Obama, the mule of the jews, suddenly became 
a sheikh, mufti (Islamic scholar that issues verdicts), and an Islamic preacher, warning the 
people and preaching in defense of Islam, claiming that the Islamic State has nothing to do with 
Islam. This occurred during six different addresses he made in the span of a single month, all 
of them about the threat of the Islamic State. 

They turned into Islamic jurists, muftis, sheikhs, and preachers, standing up for Islam and the 
Muslims, so it appears that they no longer have confidence in the ability or sincerity of their 
sorcerers in the various committees of senior scholars working for the rulers - committees of 
the supporters of the tawaghlt (rulers ruling by manmade law). 

Dear Muslims, America hasn't come with its crusade in order to save the Muslims, nor does it 
spend its wealth in spite of the collapse of its economy and burden itself in order to arm and 
train the sahwah councils in Sham and Iraq out of compassion and fear for the mujahidin from 
the "cruelty of the khawarij," and out of support for them as they allege. 

{I wish my people could know ! } [Yasln: 26]. 

Do the crusaders rush to the support of the mujahidin fighting on the path of Allah, and rush to 
rescue and save them from the khawarij? "Live long enough and you'll see strange things!" 
Woe to my people! When will they remember? 

Allah the Exalted said, {Neither those who disbelieve from the People of the Scripture nor the 
polytheists wish that any good should be sent down to you from your Lord} [Al-Baqarah: 105]. 

Likewise, Allah the Exalted said about the people of the scripture (jews and christians), {And 
they will continue to fight you until they turn you back from your religion if they are able} [Al- 
Baqarah: 217]. 

So America has not come for any reason other than to wage war against Islam and the Muslims. 
It has not gathered its allies and spent its wealth for any reason other than to break the strength 

of the mujahidin. So you have the statement of Allah on one hand, and the claim of the 
crusaders on the other. Who are you going to believe, O Muslims? 

Then will you not reason? 

The hearts of the crusaders did not denounce anything, nor were their sentiments stirred or their 
tears shed, except when they saw the rafidl-safavid army and their dogs in the Iraq war collapse 
in the face of the strikes carried out by the mujahidin, fleeing like rats, and being crushed like 
insects under the feet of the muwahhidln (monotheists). 

Indeed, America went mad and its allies lost their senses when the nusayrl forces, guard dogs 
of the jews, began collapsing in terror and fleeing in panic in the face of the mujahidin's 
advance. America and its allies had their hearts broken when they saw a group of nusayriyyah 
being herded by the soldiers of the Islamic State like animals, and slaughtered like sheep, in 
the largest battle the nusayriyyah had lost in their entire black history, so that the Islamic State 
could begin its march towards Damascus. 

It was only then that the crusaders realized the extent of the threat. It was only then that their 
emotions and sentiments were stirred. It was only then that their hearts spoke and their tears 
flowed. It was only then that they suffered pain and anguish. It was only then that America and 
its allies rose in alarm and summoned one another, terrified. The jews! The jews! Save the 

This is the reason they came. This is the purpose of their mobilization. 
And, I wish my people could know! I wish my people could know! 

Indeed, the reality of their opposition and resistance has become very clear, and the 
nusayriyyah and rafidah were not able to contain themselves. The nusayriyyah began openly 
calling for America's help, and welcoming their strikes against the Islamic State, completely 
forgetting their alleged sovereignty, their imaginary strength and capabilities, and their enmity 
towards America, which in fact was just a lie. 

Likewise Iran, as it emerged that it had allied itself with its "great Satan," when the 
uncircumcised old geezer, Kerry, recently declared that Iran had a role in the war against the 
Islamic State. So it became clear that their opposition was for the sake of protecting the jews 
and the crusaders, and that the resistance was a resistance against Islam and the mujahidin. 

O Sunnis of Iraq, the time has come for you to learn from the lessons of the past, and to learn 
that nothing will work with the rafidah other than slicing their throats and striking their necks. 
They make themselves out to be helpless so that they can take power, they conceal their hatred, 
enmity, and rage towards Sunnis, they plot and conspire against them, and they trick and 
deceive them. They display false affection towards them and flatter them as long as Sunnis are 
strong. And they keep pace with them, compete with them, and work hard to weaken them 
when they are on equal footing. 

But if one day they overcome them, they bare their fangs and reveal their claws, biting them, 
tearing them apart, killing them, and humiliating them. History is right there in front of you, O 
Sunnis, so read it. How many times have the rafidah conspired against the Sunnis, and what do 
they do to them when they gain power? 

Read their history and look at how they are in the present. Indeed, their idiot Nouri has shown 
you their true face, so do not let their new snake deceive you with his soft touch and sweet 
tongue. You have been stung through the hole of reconciliation before with Nouri, so beware. 

Our dear people of Sham, you can see the reality becoming clearer day after day. Take a lesson 
from our people in Iraq, for history repeats itself. Indeed, the crusaders began building the 

Iraqi-safavid army by training its core in Jordan, with a few thousand soldiers, as they have 
decided to do today with regard to Sham. So what did the Sunnis get out of that army other 
than to have the rafidah completely gain power over them? They tasted humiliation, disgrace, 
and many misfortunes at the hands of that army over a period of ten years. Furthermore, what 
did the sons of the Sunnis get out of joining that army other than apostasy from the religion of 
Allah, the destruction of their homes, and having their heads cut off? And those of them who 
lived, lived in continuous terror and a persistent state of fear, not knowing when he'd be taken 
by a bullet, or have his joints cut by an adhesive IED, or be deformed by an explosive or bomb, 
or be suffocated to death, or have a knife cutting his neck, or when he would return to find his 
home demolished, left in pieces after it was once whole. And for what would all this have been 
for? So take a lesson, O people of intelligence. 

{And how many a generation before them did We destroy who were greater than them in 
[striking] power and had explored throughout the lands. Is there any place of escape? Indeed 
in that is a reminder for whoever has a heart or who listens while he is present [in mind] } [Qaf: 

So pay attention, O Sunnis. For the army that they have decided to prepare today by Al Salul 
(the Saudis) is nothing more than a new set of guard dogs for the jews, and a stick in the hands 
of the crusaders to be used against Islam and the mujahidin. Therefore, we advise the mujahidin 
in Sham to target anyone who joins that army or intends to join it. And he who has given his 
warning is free of blame. 

As for the sahwah councils and their political sponsors, they will not be able to hide their reality 
after today. Their reality, that they are the sahwah councils and the shoes of the crusaders, will 
emerge very clearly. 

So rally around the mujahidin, O Sunnis of Sham, and stop your sons from joining the army 
and the sahwah councils, for what good is there in an army built by the crusaders which they 
then train on the laps of the tawaghlt. So prevent your sons, and whoever of them refuses to 
listen, let him not blame anyone but himself if there comes to him a day in which he digs his 
grave with his own hands, his head is cut off, and his house is demolished. And the blessed one 
is he who learns from the lessons of others. 

To Allah belongs honor, and to His Messenger, and to the believers. And the final outcome 
will be in favor of the righteous. 

Let us not forget before ending to praise our mujahidin brothers in the bold Sinai Peninsula, 
for hope has emerged in Egypt and good news has loomed with their blessed operations against 
the guards of the jews, the soldiers of Sisi, the new Pharaoh of Egypt. Carry on upon this path, 
for it is the correct path, may Allah bless you. Disperse those behind them wherever you may 
find them. Rig the roads with explosives for them. Attack their bases. Raid their homes. Cut 
off their heads. Do not let them feel secure. Hunt them wherever they may be. Turn their 
worldly life into fear and fire. Remove their families from their homes and thereafter blowup 
their homes. Do not say it is a fitnah (tribulation). Rather the fitnah is that their tribes defend 
them and do not disavow them. {He said, "O Noah, indeed he is not of your family; indeed, he 
is [one whose] work was other than righteous"} [Hud: 46]. {If you do not do so, there will be 
fitnah on earth and great corruption} [Al-Anfal: 73]. 

And to our brothers the muwahhidln in beloved Libya, until when will you remain dispersed 
and divided? Why do you not gather your groups, unify, unite your word, and solidify your 
ranks? Why do you not identify who is with you and who is against you? Your division is from 
Satan. {Indeed, Allah loves those who fight in His cause in a row as though they are a [single] 
structure joined firmly} [As-Saff: 4]. 

We also call out to the muwahhidln in the robbed land of Tunisia, follow the footsteps of your 
brothers in Egypt. O brother in tawhld (monotheism), what do you wait for while the tawaghlt 
have prevented you from making da'wah (calling to the religion)? They prohibited you also 
from emigrating and opened for you their prisons of false freedom. They arrest your brothers 
every day and kill them. What do you wait for? Do you wait for the life of humiliation and 
disgrace? Or do you love the worldly life and hate death? Rise against them for the muhwahhid 
(monotheist) is an army by himself. Where are the descendants of 'Uqbah, Musa, and Tariq? 
{Fight them; Allah will punish them by your hands and will disgrace them and give you victory 
over them and satisfy the breasts of a believing people} [At-Tawbah: 14]. 

As for Yemen, then O alas for what has come upon Yemen. Alas ! Alas for Sanaa. The rafidl 
houthis have entered it, but the car bombs have not roasted their skin, nor have the explosive 
belts and IEDs cut their joints. Is there not in Yemen a person who will take revenge for us 
from the houthis? {And if you turn away, He will replace you with another people; then they 
will not be the likes of you] [Muhammad: 38]. 

O muwahhidln in Europe, America, Australia, and Canada... O muwahhidln in Morocco and 
Algeria... O muwahhidln in Khorasan, the Caucasus, and Iran... O muwahhidln everywhere 
upon the face of the earth... O brothers in creed... O people of wala' (allegiance to the 
Muslims) and bara' (disavowal of disbelievers). . . O patrons of the Islamic State. . . O you who 
have given bay' ah (pledge of allegiance) to the Caliph Ibrahim everywhere. . . O you who have 
loved the Islamic State. . . O you who support the Caliphate. . . O you who consider yourselves 
from amongst its soldiers and patrons. . . 

Your state is facing a new campaign by the crusaders. So O muwahhid, wherever you may be, 
what are you going to do to support your brothers? What do you wait for as the people have 
become two encampments and the heat of the war increases day by day? O muwahhid, we call 
you up to defend the Islamic State. Dozens of nations have gathered against it. They began 
their war against us at all levels. So rise O muwahhid. Rise and defend your state from your 
place wherever you may be. Rise and defend your Muslim brothers, for their homes, families, 
and wealth are threatened and deemed lawful by their enemies. They are facing a battle which 
is of the decisive, critical battles in the history of Islam. If the Muslims are defeated, they will 
be humiliated in such a manner that no humiliation compares to. And if the Muslims are 
victorious - and this will be the case by Allah's permission - they will be honored with all 
honor by which the Muslims will return to being the masters of the world and kings of the 

So O muwahhid, do not let this battle pass you by wherever you may be. You must strike the 
soldiers, patrons, and troops of the tawaghlt. Strike their police, security, and intelligence 
members, as well as their treacherous agents. Destroy their beds. Embitter their lives for them 
and busy them with themselves. If you can kill a disbelieving American or European - 
especially the spiteful and filthy French - or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other 
disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that 
entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any 
manner or way however it may be. Do not ask for anyone's advice and do not seek anyone's 
verdict. Kill the disbeliever whether he is civilian or military, for they have the same ruling. 
Both of them are disbelievers. Both of them are considered to be waging war [the civilian by 
belonging to a state waging war against the Muslims]. Both of their blood and wealth is legal 
for you to destroy, for blood does not become illegal or legal to spill by the clothes being worn. 
The civilian outfit does not make blood illegal to spill, and the military uniform does not make 
blood legal to spill. The only things that make blood illegal and legal to spill are Islam and a 
covenant (peace treaty, dhimma, etc.). Blood becomes legal to spill through disbelief. So 

whoever is a Muslim, his blood and wealth are sanctified. And whoever is a disbeliever, his 
wealth is legal for a Muslim to take and his blood is legal to spill. His blood is like the blood 
of a dog; there is no sin for him in spilling it nor is there any blood money to be paid for doing 

Allah the Exalted said, {And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists 
wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every 
place of ambush} [At-Tawbah: 5]. 

And He the Exalted said, {So when you meet those who disbelieve [in battle], strike [their] 
necks} [Muhammad: 4]. 

And Allah's Messenger (blessings and peace be upon him) said, "The disbeliever and his killer 
will never gather in Hellfire." And he said, "Whoever kills a disbeliever, then he can have his 
loot [which is on his person]." 

So O muwahhid. . . O you who believes in wala' and bara' . . . will you leave the American, the 
Frenchman, or any of their allies to walk safely upon the earth while the armies of the crusaders 
strike the lands of the Muslims not differentiating between a civilian and fighter? They have 
killed nine Muslim women three days ago by striking a bus transporting them from Sham to 
Iraq. Will you leave the disbeliever to sleep safely at home while the Muslim women and 
children shiver with fear of the roars of the crusader airplanes above their heads day and night? 
How can you enjoy life and sleep while not aiding your brothers, not casting fear into the hearts 
of the cross worshippers, and not responding to their strikes with multitudes more? 

So O muwahhid wherever you may be, hinder those who want to harm your brothers and state 
as much as you can. The best thing you can do is to strive to your best and kill any disbeliever, 
whether he be French, American, or from any of their allies. 

{ O you who have believed, take your precaution and [either] go forth in companies or go forth 
all together} [An-Nisa': 71]. 

If you are not able to find an IED or a bullet, then single out the disbelieving American, 
Frenchman, or any of their allies. Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or 
run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him. 
Do not lack. Do not be contemptible. Let your slogan be, "May I not be saved if the cross 
worshipper and taghut (ruler ruling by manmade laws) patron survives." 

If you are unable to do so, then burn his home, car, or business. Or destroy his crops. 

If you are unable to do so, then spit in his face. If your self refuses to do so, while your brothers 
are being bombarded and killed, and while their blood and wealth everywhere is deemed lawful 
by their enemies, then review your religion. You are in a dangerous condition because the 
religion cannot be established without wala' and bara'. 

Finally, we do not want to forget to direct a message towards our Muslim people and brothers 
from the Kurds in Iraq, Sham, and elsewhere. Our war with Kurds is a religious war. It is not 
a nationalistic war - we seek the refuge of Allah. We do not fight Kurds because they are 
Kurds. Rather we fight the disbelievers amongst them, the allies of the crusaders and jews in 
their war against the Muslims. As for the Muslim Kurds, then they are our people and brothers 
wherever they may be. We spill our blood to save their blood. The Muslim Kurds in the ranks 
of the Islamic State are many. They are the toughest of fighters against the disbelievers amongst 
their people. 

O Allah, America, France, and their allies transgressed against us. They came with their legions 
to fight us out of their enmity for your religion. They prevent us from establishing your religion 

and your hudiid (fixed punishments), and ruling by what you revealed. O Allah, you know our 
weakness. We have no way to deal with their airplanes. O Allah, you have said what is true, 
{So do not weaken and do not grieve, and you will be superior if you are [true] believers} [Ali 
'Imran: 139]. O Allah, we have believed in you and relied upon you. You are sufficient for us 
and the best disposer of affairs. O Allah, America and its allies disbelieve in you and associate 
partners with you. O Allah, you have placed them above us by their airplanes. O Allah, you 
know we have no power nor strength against their planes except through You. O Allah, do not 
let them be above us while You are above them. O Allah, do not let them be above us while 
we are higher than them. O Allah, do not let them be above us while we are higher than them. 
There is no god but You. You are glorified and You do not fail in Your promise. We ask your 
forgiveness and repent to you. O Allah, you will prevent them from harming us with whatever 
You will and however You will. You are the Mighty and Compeller. O Allah, you will bring 
them down to the ground and place us above them. You are the King, the Prevailing. O Allah, 
make it their last crusader campaign, so that we raid them and they do not raid us. There is no 
god but You. You are glorified. We have been among the wrongdoers. We ask your forgiveness 
and repent to you, so do not hold us responsible for what the foolish among us may have done. 
You are sufficient for us and the best disposer of affairs. We take shelter with You, and entrust 
our affairs to You. You are glorified, glorified. You are the best protector and helper. 

May blessings and peace be upon our prophet Muhammad, and all his family and companions. 

Our final call is: Praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds!
